As your dedicated Virginia Beach Realtor, I’m invested and care about your search for the perfect home.

And nothing matches the joy I feel when I see the same happiness mirrored in your eyes – the happiness of finding a home that caters to all your needs at just the right price.
On a personal note, I love surfing and am a loving animal owner (two dogs & two cats).

Your Trusted Virginia Beach Realtor, Jake Maines
In 2011, I moved to the Hampton Roads area to study marketing at Old Dominion University, and the irresistible charm of Virginia Beach won my heart; ever since I’ve happily called it my home.
Before diving into the real estate world, I was the Creative Director at a local marketing agency. I led the firm’s transformation from a software development house to a thriving digital marketing agency. Through innovative marketing strategies, I increased my department’s revenue from $5,000 a month to $183,000. The skills I learned there are now used to help Virginia Beach real estate clients.
My Professional Journey
I started in real estate when I ventured into it to increase my personal investments. I quickly realized the profound impact I could make as a full-time Realtor in people’s lives and my community. The thrill of helping clients find their dream homes soon became my driving force.
With my background in marketing in Virginia Beach and working with people, I brought top-notch negotiation skills and deep local market knowledge to real estate. My true specialty lies in offering an outstanding customer service experience. Going the extra mile for my clients is the norm, not the exception – their happiness in finding the perfect home is my ultimate reward.
My Credentials & Why They Matter
At the heart of my professional journey lies a sincere passion for helping individuals and families find their perfect homes. This passion is driven by the deep satisfaction of seeing the joy on my client’s faces when they find their dream home.
I continuously strive to enhance my knowledge and expertise through professional certifications to ensure I can offer my clients the best. These qualifications are not just emblems of my competence; they are the foundation that allows me to effectively and efficiently guide you on your home-buying journey.
Each certification I earned involved rigorous training, real-world experience, and stringent exams; they reflect my commitment to my profession and, more importantly, to you – my client. These certifications have given me a nuanced understanding of the Virginia Beach real estate market, property laws, ethical practices, negotiation techniques, and customer service – everything I need to ensure you find the perfect home and enjoy a stress-free and seamless transaction process.
My Affiliations & Why They Benefit You
I’m a proud member of the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and the Hampton Roads Realtors Association (HRRA). My affiliations with these well-known organizations provide a platform for networking and knowledge sharing and signify my steadfast commitment to serving my clients following the highest ethical standards.
As a member of NAR and HRRA, I adhere to a strict code of ethics and standards of practice. This fiduciary responsibility ensures that I prioritize your interests above all else. You can trust me to represent your needs with utmost honesty, transparency, and diligence.

- I strive to understand your unique needs and preferences to find the best property that suits your lifestyle and budget.
- I offer radical transparency, keeping you informed about every aspect of the transaction and explaining the steps, processes, and paperwork in clear, simple language.
- And I will negotiate the best possible deal for you using my experience, skills, and network to ensure you get your dream home at the right price.
Through these affiliations, I also participate in ongoing education programs. I am privy to other resources, ensuring I am always up-to-date with the latest market trends and regulations, offering you the most accurate advice and guidance.
Awards and Recognitions: Spot Light Of Achievements
Navigating the Virginia Beach real estate landscape is challenging. It’s a challenge I embrace in the name of helping you find your dream home. In recognition of my commitment to excellence in real estate, I’ve been fortunate to receive numerous awards and recognitions. It’s a testament to my dedication and passion for real estate.
Being named one of Cova Biz Magazine’s Millennials On The Move is a recognition that holds a special place in my heart. It demonstrates the energetic and innovative approach I use to help my clients navigate the real estate market in Virginia Beach.
In my first year as a full-time Realtor, I ranked among Hampton Roads top 8% of Realtors. This is a testament to my commitment to ensuring that every client receives top-notch service and experiences a smooth, stress-free journey to owning the home of their dreams.
I’m also deeply honored to be featured multiple times in The Virginian Pilot and to have a regular feature in The Connector Magazines as “The Networking Expert.” These recognitions highlight my dedication to building strong, genuine relationships and utilizing those connections to find the perfect property match for my clients. Whether it’s advising on local events or providing readers with networking tips, I’m constantly looking for ways to contribute to our vibrant community.
Every award and recognition fuels my drive to serve you better, promising an unwavering commitment to your home-buying journey.

It’s about helping you open a new chapter of your life – a chapter filled with joy, contentment, and a beautiful home.
I envision a Virginia Beach where every individual or family can find a place to call home – a home that’s not just a structure but a haven filled with love, laughter, and cherished memories. It’s where you can kick off your shoes after a long day, chase your dog around the yard, or ride the waves on a sunny afternoon. This is the experience I strive to provide through my work, an experience that translates your dreams into reality.
Community Involvement: Impacting Lives Beyond Real Estate
“Events: Connecting, Celebrating & Elevating People
I love our community and believe our local events testify to our unity, resilience, and vibrancy. Whether it’s our Networking Happy Hour events or local fundraisers, I’m always thrilled to participate and bring people together. These events are a lot of fun and a platform for us to support each other and grow stronger together.
I want to make a difference through community involvement, inspire others to give back and intertwine my life with the people and the city I love dearly. Let’s continue to build our community, one step at a time!”
I always say, “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” As a proud member of the Virginia Beach community, giving back is an integral part of my life and work.
I believe in putting my hands to work to help improve our beautiful city. Whether that’s by volunteering for local charities or helping out at community events, this ties in with my passion for helping people, allowing me to extend my assistance beyond the confines of real estate sales.
Beyond my work as a Realtor, I find immense joy in supporting local charities and initiatives to improve our community. I’m particularly proud of my involvement with The Noblemen and All District Reads. I’m leading efforts to provide 140,000 books to all 54 Virginia Beach Public Schools elementary students in these roles. Education is the foundation of our future, and I’m honored to contribute to the bright minds of our city.
One of the key events I’ve hosted is our Networking Happy Hour. These events are designed for all business owners, professionals, and anyone eager to build connections. They are a great way to meet and mingle, and we collect donations for local nonprofit organizations, further amplifying community spirit.
As a firm believer in the power of giving, I’m proud to say that these events have raised thousands of dollars for many local 757 charities, such as The Noblemen, Lynnhaven River NOW, Hope For Life Rescue, Virginia Beach SPCA, & Special Olympics.
Client Appreciation Events
That’s not all! I also host bi-annual client appreciation events, treating my clients to a fun-filled night at various sporting events or other fun activities.
We’re not stopping here! The best is yet to come. I’m seeking more ways to connect, including continuing the Networking Happy Hours and client appreciation events. I’ll be sharing details on my website.
I aim to celebrate our community, foster mutual growth, and create lasting relationships through these events. Please join me on this journey.
